Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, and a popular tourist destination. One of the largest Carnival festivals is hosted here, and for tourists there is a lot to see and do. But the island is large enough to escape mass tourism, so let its natural beauty seduce you to a hike or a drive around the island. You’ll find mountains to climb, cliffs overlooking bays, and ravines. The ‘Island of eternal spring’ is just what you need if you arrive fresh from your Journey!
Tobago is an island within the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, an island state in the Caribbean. Much more relaxed than the bustling Trinidad, Tobago is a great place for nature-lovers and people who like to experience the slow local life. Visit Tobago Forest Reserve to take a trek through the rainforest, try water sports or simply relax on a sandy beach. You should also step into one of the many small restaurants and try the local specialties!
